SaneFiftyFour - Ivey EP [shkart028]

In this release each piece is a kind of homage to mid-twentieth-century composition technique filtered through electronic textures and DAW/sampling technologies. In the first two pieces, improvised and composed MIDI is sped up to the point approaching a microsound texture. At high speeds, the sense of harmonic progression is undermined. The latter two pieces are more or less direct renderings of improvisation and melodic variation on DAW samplers.
